Texas Transportation Code §550.062 requires any law enforcement officer who in the regular course of duty investigates a motor vehicle crash that results in injury to or the death of a person or damage to the property of any one person to the apparent extent of $1,000 or more, to submit a written report of that crash to TxDOT not later than the tenth day after the date of the crash.
There are many times when the police do not attend an accident scene, if your accident was minor and there were no injuries and minimal damage, for example. It is still important to make sure an accurate police report is filed in these circumstances.

Steps for Getting an Accident Report in Pflugerville, TX
If you are looking to get a copy of your official car crash report after being involved in a collision in Pflugerville, there are a few options that you have at your disposal. It is important to note that there are two types of accident reports generated. The first is an accident report that will be submitted to the state by the officer who created it, and the second is a self-report that is used for insurance purposes.
It is also important to note that in the state of Texas, crash reports are expected to be processed and ready to be reviewed no more than 10 days after an accident occurs.
If the accident was not investigated by law enforcement, a report will not be available. The Driver’s Crash Report is an unofficial document the driver can fill out that will help identify relevant information related to the collision, and can be supplied to the insurance company and other involved parties.
